Documentation on Wordpress multisite

Recommended Posts


Hi there


I'm still missing some documentation on Wordpress multistite and DMS 2 - where can i find this? http://docs.pagelines.com/advanced/wordpress-multisite


I need some general guidelines on updates and installing.


I do expect documentation on a product we pay for, and when i search in the forum i can see creating documentation on this matter have been on your to-do list for at least a year. The last update we made resulted on hundreds of blank pages and missing stylesheets - again no documentation on the pagelines docs, but for some reason this was described in the forum instead, i expect to find documentation on pagelines docs not here.  


Looking forward to hearing from you.

There is no need for documentation on WordPress multisite, as all the features are by WordPress. We will only provide documentation for DMS specific functionality. DMS acts exactly the same in standard WordPress as it does in WordPress Multisite. The documentation you're linking to, shouldn't actually be there and is a placeholder that hasn't been deleted, but will be now.


If you have any issues please reply and go into detail regarding your issue(s), as well as providing a link to the site in question.

Please search our forums, before posting!

surftown I have set up DMS multisite installs on Flywheel and Digital Ocean. It's fairly easy to do (easier than people imagine) but consulting WP and online tutorials helps. I found that most of the info on Digital Ocean's site was outdated and I had to learn a few things via trial and error. So be sure to read through any threads on any tutorials/documentation for wherever it is you plan to install a Multisite. 


One other thing: I have been running DMS on a multisite for over a year and in that time I have never encountered a single issue traceable to any aspect of DMS that would effect the smooth running of a multisite. 


My advice is to look for documentation with your server/host on how to set up a multisite. Even with a managed hosting account like Flywheel, there is still a certain amount of work (none of it really hard) you are going to have to do on your own to set up and run a multisite on your WP install.

      I am working on a multisite installation and had some questions regarding the themeing options. All the sites will have the same structure but each individual site would need a different h1 font and link color. I had originally thought that I would program/edit the parent theme to have a certain set of templates, font sizes, etc. and then that would feed to all the individual sites where I could activate the child theme and use the child theme to define the individual sites' specific link color, heading fonts, etc. So, what I was shooting for was:
      Parent theme = shared by all sites
      Child theme = specific to the minor customizations on a per site basis.
      Is this possible? Am I misunderstanding how these would actually deploy to the different sites?

      I have a grandfathered dev account and am unable to activate subsites on my multisite network.
      Tried disconnecting and reconnecting account. Only main site is shown as activated.
      Since pro activation has been off and on for subsites I added code to hide the pagelines watermark (bottom left image/link). Could that be flagging the account not to activate or something?
      Network is on AWS Elastic Beanstalk, is there a port that needs to be open for authentication?

      Hi, I'm looking to make the move to multisite with MultilingualPress instead of using WPML.
      I was able to configure Wordpress to work in multisite mode, to get MultilingualPress to work and have pages in both language that I want. I can make changes to my primary language pages in Pagelines, but in the secondary pages (other language), any changes I make are not saved. When I click on save it looks as it is saving but as soon as I reload the page all changes are gone.
      So am I missing something that I should do to get Pagelines to work in multisite mode? I get that PageLines Platform 5 need to be activated in network mode, I've tried to activate the other plugins & themes in network and individually on the sites.

      I have multisite installation: www.udf.org.br (master) and Mapping Domain plugin to work with different domains: www.deusprovedor.org.br, www.fenolar.org.br and www.penselaranja.org.br.
      In the other domains inside multisite, Pagelines files has been blocket by Cross-Origin Resource Sharing policy.
      I use domain name in wp-admin ex.: www.deusprovedor.org.br/wp-admin (not www.udf.org.br/deusprovedor/wp-admin).
      Any ideias how i fix this?

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date
